Fool on street is landing (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stairhead

Here is my best explanation:

'is landing' is the definition.

'fool on street' is the subsidiary indication.

'fool' becomes 'airhead' (**).

'on' says to put letters next to each other.

'street' becomes 'st'.

'airhead' after 'st' is 'stairhead'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for stairhead that I've seen before include "landing after a flight" and "Landing".)
